BIO

REMAIN IN LIGHT
Angelique Kidjo has partenered with 2015 Grammy producer of the Year Jeff Bhasker (Kany West, Rolling Stones, Beyonce) for her version of “Remain in Light” which brings the landmark 1980 album by Talking Heads full circle, back to the sounds of West Africa than inspired that original.
It features appearances by Ezra Koenig, Blood Orange, Tony Allen, Antibalas Horns,Angelique’s longtime guitarist Dominic James, and Magatte Sow (percussionist for the ‘Black Panter’ film score). Visual artist Kerry James Marshall collaborated on the album artwork.

QUEEN OF SHEBA – ANGÉLIQUE KIDJO & IBRAHIM MAALOUF

Symphonic work composed by Ibrahim Maalouf on an Angélique Kidjo’s text inspired by the legend of the Queen of Sheba

« The legend of the queen of Sheba establishes the founding myth of the encounter between Africa and the Middle East.
By means of the enigmas submitted by the Queen to King Salomon, we intertwine our roots, melodies and rhythms with Ibrahim to recreate with music the magical collision of these two cultures. »
